Values are fundamental expressions of what we think and believe.
Our Christian values are the foundations of our teaching and learning and provide an environment which nurtures happy, confident and independent children, who make good choices and contribute positively to society.
“Love learning love life”
Every person deserves to live a life in all its fullness and fulfil their potential, and it falls to us, within our role of Christian service to all in this locality, to strive to counteract all barriers of difference such as race, nationality, religion, gender and status which limit their personal flourishing. Our actions are the outworking in our daily school life of the two great commandments of love of God and love of neighbour.
A Love of God
'Love the Lord God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbour as yourself.' (Luke 25:10)
This central element of Christian behaviour underpins the clear ethos of Corvedale CE Primary School and is also central to our values for life. All the members of our school community share an ethos of kindness and respect for others.
Linked Values – compassion and respect
A Love of Learning
‘Whoever heeds instruction is on the path to life’ (Proverbs 10:17)
At Corvedale Primary School we value individual achievement, good relationships, inclusion, spirituality and enjoyment.

Our pupils learn to live life to the full.
